Firstly, below is the performance of a chinese made sample. These chinese rims i see being fitted on many cars here in kenya. You can get a set from $160 for a 14 inch in nairobi. This translates to ksh 4000 a piece for an alloy wheel. Really? Si chinese wako na jokes. scratched very easily. I hear they are made of scrap and makers have no idea what metal they used. Cheapest new genuine alloy wheels begin at $1200 and above for a set if the manufacturer is local to the country of purchase. Imports are another story. genuine second hand ex germany, ex uk, or ex japan are usually too old, scratched or paint faded and finding a good one is needle in a haystack problem; and they are still twice or thrice as expensive. Even when you find good second hand ones that fit your wheel hub and studs, most often than not, they are not made for your car engine size, torque, power at the wheel, or even looks(body shape). So you install them and effect is opposite(your car is ugly, lags and consumes more). light rims are not cast, but forged and visibly less chunky. We have no idea how chinese make theirs. Whats your opinion of Chinese rims and tires here in kenya?
